Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
Today, Advicent announced the latest additions to the NaviPlan® financial planning tool, including NaviPlan LEADS™ online lead generation tool, expanded integration options and new Next-Gen reports functionality.
Every day, more Americans turn to the Internet and technology for answers to their financial questions, so the need for advisors to quickly adapt their online presence is critical. “Having a branded lead generation tool is a huge differentiator for advisors,” says Andrew Stevens, NaviPlan® product director at Advicent. “It not only makes it easy for new clients to find the information they crave, but also helps advisors position themselves as the financial expert online – turning their website into a lead generation tool that works 24/7 to fill their funnel with prospects.”
Advicent also unveiled the latest integration partners for the NaviPlan® financial planning tool – Morningstar and Redtail CRM. “We understand how time-consuming and data intense the financial planning process is,” states Cory Olson, senior product director at Advicent. “Our integrations give some of that time back to advisors and reduce the potential for manual error.”
“This new web service can automatically send up-to-date client data to NaviPlan® users, and it supports our goal of helping advisors streamline their workflows by connecting Morningstar products with leading third-party applications,” said Tricia Rothschild, Morningstar’s global head of advisor solutions. “This integration allows advisors to more effectively serve clients by saving time and reducing manual data-entry errors.”
The latest updates to the NaviPlan® financial planning tool include the following:
•NaviPlan LEADS™ – online major purchase, education and retirement lead generation tools to help advisors strengthen their firm’s online presence, get new clients, pre-qualify prospects, and focus on growth
•New integrations with Morningstar OfficeSM and Redtail CRM to save time and eliminate data re-entry errors
•20 new Next-Gen reports and further freedom to add custom notes within a new Microsoft Word export
•Additional calculations and analyses to cover diverse client needs including human life value analysis, variable mortgages and non-qualified deferred compensation
